And after reading this amazing book, don’t miss out on April’s other best selling books like…
Welcome to Cabin Green, where the setting is familiar, but the story is completely unexpected. A terrifying slow-burn that combines the literary Gothic prose of Shirley Jackson, Ambrose Bierce, & Thomas Tryon with the “what’s really real?” aspects of The Shining. Cabin Green has also been compared to the devastation of Hereditary and the socially progressive, ambiguous approach of Paul Tremblay.
Going to Cabin Green alone after the death of his fiancée was Ben’s first mistake. His second mistake was tempting fate by saying, “There’s no such thing as an evil building.” Now he’s caught in a nightmare of his own making deep in the woods of Northern Michigan. Even worse, a family history of mental illness makes it impossible for him to know if the ghosts haunting the cabin are real or all in his head.
This modern Gothic horror story takes the reader directly into Ben’s hellish experience. Is he crazy? Is a ghost haunting him? The only way to find out is to make it to the end of this deep, dark thrill ride that’s filled with more twists than a roller coaster.

The Haunting of Cabin Green was the #1 Amazon best seller in the U.S. New Horror Releases category for three straight weeks. It went on to become a #1 Best-Seller in Gothic, Ghosts, U.S. Horror, and LGBT Horror. Additionally, it was the Top Vote-Getter in the Horror/Suspense category of The Kindle Book Review’s 2018 Reader’s Choice Awards.
Both books in her Midnight Myths and Fairy Tales series became a #1 Best Seller in Amazon’s Canada store during March 2018.
Many of April’s books take their inspiration from real-life events. Local history is woven throughout the Alexa Bentley Paranormal Mysteries Series, and all of her novels/novellas contain at least one or two elements from the author’s life.
In her psychological thriller book, Corvo Hollows, April delved even deeper into her own real-life events through a fictionalized account of one of the freakiest encounters she’s ever been involved in. The main character in Corvo Hollows also battles fibromyalgia, as does April.
Like many writers, she started putting pen to paper during early childhood. Her first project was a family newspaper entitled The Taylor Family Times. Since then, she’s spent more than three decades honing her craft through a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction projects.
April’s appropriately spooky black cat, Riley, is her toughest editor and critic (look for pictures of him in action – and sleeping on the job – on Instagram!).
Horror caught her attention at a young age, and she’s enjoyed exploring the darkness hidden inside everyone’s psyche ever since. She’s also intrigued by each person’s capacity for astounding levels of goodness in the face of overwhelming evil.
April’s horror, paranormal mysteries, thrillers, and dark, reimagined myths and fairy tales tackle both these topics. The darker side of humanity is also on display inside her Fine Art and Dark Art photographs, which have been published and exhibited around the world by a diverse list of media sources such as Fangoria, Scream: The Horror Magazine, and the short horror film Cathartic.
April is a proud member of the Horror Writer’s Association. She lives in Michigan with the love of her life and their two cats. If her life was a cartoon, she’d be Lisa Simpson.
